Clear Dollar Stamps - Sometimes You're The Bug...

I was a little disappointed this morning when I got up and realized I had "work" to do and wasn't going to have time to stamp today. But look what the mail carrier brought me!

I saw this stamp set on someones blog recently and thought, Wow! Is that ever cute!! Must have!

This is such a large stamp I needed my Creative Memories cutting system to make the circles. Luckily I found it out in the garage in the first box I opened.

The first card I used Tempting Turquoise and Black paper, my designer paper is SU retired several catalogs ago. The stamps I used are from 3 sets, Clear Dollar Stamps - Sometimes You're The Bug & Heaven Bound and Papertrey - Birthday Basics. To get the Happy Birthday stamp to fit the circle I had to shape it a little while I put it on the arylic block. Copic markers - C0, C3, C8, B02, B04, B05, R46. I used a Copic Spica glitter marker on the rear view mirror and tail lights, the SU Word Window punch and a couple of black brads.

I had a hard time with the ribbon ends so I used my SU corner punch to make the photo corners so I could hide the ends.

The designer paper again is SU retired, Lavender Lace card stock, Apricot Appeal foto corners, Wild Wasabi stitched ribbon and Copic markers - BV00, BV11, C0, C3, C8, G40, G24, R46 and once again I used the Copic Spica glitter marker (clear) on the rear view mirror and tail lights.

I just discovered Clear Dollar Stamps online, wow, she has some really cute stamps at very reasonable prices with fast shipping. What more could a girl want?

That is one cool image. It does look big, I image it would look best on a square card.

Great colouring as well!
